A Fun Place to van Gogh!
Pinot’s Palette offers a creative twist to the traditional night out on the town. At Pinot’s Palette, groups or individuals grab drinks, mingle, and then sit down in front of blank canvasses to create une peinture (a painting) from with acrylic paint. Ç'est Magnifique!
How to get your Caravaggio vibe on!
Last night, I tried Pinot’s Palette for the first time. Our energetic and enthusiastic instructor, Kate, and her assistants led us, step-by-step, to turn our canvasses into backgrounds of lovely, swirling colors. By night’s end, we each had a painting of Tour Eiffel (the Eiffel Tower) against a snowy backdrop.
I went by myself, but most of the other étudiants en art (art students) came with a group or as a couple. One Sparkman High School student was celebrating her 16th birthday with a bunch of her friends and her mom. Kate led us all in singing “Happy Birthday” to the young lady. The music of all genres is rocking, but I loved the 80’s music best. A bunch of us sang along, adding to the party atmosphere.
Maybe you’ve always wanted to paint but don’t know how. No worries! The art instructor at Pinot’s Palette will guide you during the entire creative process. The acrylic paint is fast-drying, so mistakes can easily be fixed. Dress up or dress down. Either way, Pinot’s Palette provides you with a big apron to protect your clothing. You will also receive a canvass, easel, brushes, paints, and complimentary water. Patrons may purchase snacks, soda, wine, and beer at the bar.
The Renaissance Man and Woman.
Adam and Amber Rohrer tried Pinot’s Palette in Little Rock, Arkansas back when they were living there. “I thought I would hate it,” says Adam. “But actually I liked it.” After moving to Huntsville, the couple opened Pinot’s Palette in Providence in April 2016. It is the only Pinot’s Palette in the state of Alabama! “We’ve received so many wonderful reviews. Huntsville is a great community,” says Adam. “There is such a wide background of people who live here.”
Some Pinot’s Palette patrons have artistic experience, while some do not. Adam suggests, “Usually those who have no experience have the most fun because they don’t start out with high expectations of themselves.” All you have to do is to bring yourself and an excitement for painting!
Picasso for a Cause.
Contact Pinot’s Palette for your community causes. Earlier this year, Adam and Amber decided to help victims of Hurricane Harvey. They held a class, and 100% of the proceeds went toward Hurricane Harvey relief. “We sold out within hours and did the same fundraiser the following weekend!”
The Gift of Gauguin.
Whether you’re looking for a girl’s night out, a date night, private parties, corporate events, or you’re simply an individual who needs to get out of the house and be artistic, Pino’s Palette is great fun! Gift cards are also available.
